Philip Montgomery




Pep Hamilton - Stanford University

Most talent evaluators believe that Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck will be the 1st pick in the draft next April. A few of those that work for the worldwide leader tell us that Pep Hamilton deserves a lot of the credit for getting Luck to where he is. In 2004 and 2005 Hamilton worked with the quarterbacks for the New York Jets. He spent the 2006 season with the QBs for the 49ers. In 2007, '08 and '09 he was the quarterbacks coach for the Chicago Bears. In 2010, Jim Harbaugh hired him to work with Luck (Hamilton also coach the wide receivers). This season, Hamilton is serving as the offensive coordinator / quarterbacks coach. Luck is all smiles.

Some say Andrew Luck might turn out to be one of the great NFL quarterbacks; but no one disputes that Case Keenum is one of the all time great college quarterbacks. Under Kingsbury's watch, Keenum has destroyed almost every record a quarterback can think of.

RG3 is one of the great stories of this college football season. He burst onto the national stage with a huge, gutty performance on opening night as he led his Bears to a huge win over TCU...and he hasn't stopped since. Art Briles recently said that RG3 is a special talent; but Philip Montgomery has made him a great quarterback.
